Inspired by the Top/Bottom meme at [livejournal.com profile] spn_bunker Seems a lot of folk had trouble choosing only 5 in each category so maybe narrowing it down to 1 season may help to focus the choices. My version with a twist.

Pick your FAVOURITE season.
List your 5 LEAST favourite

Created by [livejournal.com profile] raloria and seen everywhere:

Right Now I'm...


Feeling: cold. it's 14C and I don't like the cold. Bring back summer!!!! But at least it's not still 5C like it was when I woke up at 8.30 this morning

Wearing: black & white leggings, sneakers, long-sleeve blue top, my Sam/Dean/Cas/Bobby t-shirt I bought at AHBL con last month, my black Team Winchester hoodie

Wishing: I could afford to turn on my heater. Am freezing my butt off so I can go to SPN cons in the US in November. J2 had better appreciate the sacrifice I'm making.

Missing: New SPN. Hurry up October and season 11

Thinking: of ways to earn extra money so I can actually afford to eat when in America. I have con tickets, airfares and hotels pretty much paid for.

Wondering: what to write for the middle 3rd of my spn rarepairs fic. Have written the 1st section and plotted out the last but have no idea about the middle. I mean I know what needs to happen (it's in the prompt) just not how to write it in an exciting and interesting way. Have about 24 hours to figure it out and get it done and posted.

Raving About: can't think of anything I'm particularly excited about right now.

Ranting About: Nothing. I'm pretty chill at the moment.

Fangirling/Drooling Over: That J2+kids pic Jensen tweeted, pretty much like the rest of fandom and LJ and my Twitter timeline.

Thankful For: my gorgeous dog, Sam and his unconditional love and cuddles and tail-wagging.

Planning: to start another full SPN rewatch. Just finished Season 10 yesterday and am missing my show and the boys already.

Looking forward to: the next season of Dominion starting in July. Will have to rewatch season 1 in next few days.

Dreading: something really bad happening which forces me to cancel my Nov con adventure and miss out on meeting Jared.

Wanting: to win the lottery so I can pay off all my bills and not have to worry about living pay-to-pay and take my best friend with me to the US cons.

Hoping: All my wonderful f*listies are having a great day/week/year.

TV meme

Jun. 14th, 2015 12:33 pm
vyperdd: (Default)
Snurched from [livejournal.com profile] frelling_tralk and looks like fun!!!!


01. Earliest show you remember getting into.
Battlestar Galactica --- the original and IMO still the best. This show began my love of all things Sci-fi. I remember seeing it and immediately falling in love with the show and Dirk Benedict (Starbuck). He was my very first TV crush/boyfriend. This was in '78/79 before VCR's so if you missed the show or a particular episode on TV, you had no way of seeing it until re-runs months, sometimes years later. I was so happy when it was released on DVD so I could discover it all over again after not having seen it for over 20 years.

02. First anime watched.

Supernatural. It was ummmmmmmmm interesting. Weird hearing Dean voiced by someone other than Jensen but loved that Jared did all the eps for Sam. Will probably be the last anime I watch.

03. A show you've been meaning to finish.

Gilmore Girls. I watched the first 5 seasons a couple of months ago but then lost interest when Jared left. Then seeing the GG reunion panel vids last week, made me really curious as to how the show ended so I'm now watching the last 2 seasons.

04. 2 shows you abandoned.

The Beauty and The Beast and Defiance. Both because I just lost interest. I would download the eps but not watch them until days or even weeks later so stopped d'loading them altogether.

05. A series you're currently watching.

Supernatural. I know we are in the dreaded hellatus but I am ALWAYS watching my Show. Currently half way thru season 9. When I hit 10x23, I'll go back to the pilot and watch all 218 episodes over again.

Other than that, I'm watching Game Of Thrones, Sense8 & Aquarius. Going to be starting on a rewatch of Dominion season 1 to refresh before season 2 airs next month.

06. A show you're sad is over.
Farscape because it was frelling awesome TV filled with awesome and amazing characters and plots and action and feelings.

Boston Legal because I miss Denny Crane and Alan Shore like crazy. Hmmmmmmmm, think it's time for a rewatch!!!

07. Favorite series finale.

Nine Feet Under. This is gonna sound really weird because the finale was the only episode I did see but I loved it and given the premise of the show (set in a funeral home) showing how each character met their end was so fitting that I can't imagine any other ending. I really must watch the show one of these days.


08. A series finale you would change.

Quantum Leap. This is an easy one. I loved the whole series and the finale but I hated that Sam just kept on leaping and never got to go home. So I would have let him go home and see Al. Sam could have decided after that to keep leaping to help people as long as he could still go home at any time.

09. Worst TV program you've ever seen.

Big Brother and a lot of other reality tv shows.

10. A show that shouldn't have been cancelled.
Farscape Although we did get the awesome Peacekeeper Wars to wrap things up, I would have loved to have seen how they handled that plot stretched over a full season rather than a 4 hour mini-series. Plus any excuse to have more Ben Browder in tight black leather!!!!

11. A show that needs to end

Dr Who. Don't kill me but since my favourite and only Dr is Ten and he's gone :-( the show has already finished for me.

12. Favorite cartoon.
The classics, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tom & Jerry, The RoadRunner

13. Favorite reboot.

Queer As Folk (US version) Not sure if this counts but it's the only remake I can think of. I did like the original UK version, but everything about the US one is so much better. More eps, hotter guys, sexier sex scenes.

14. A TV adaptation you'd like to see
Stephen King's 'A Dark Tower' One of my favourite series ever. Like GoT and Outlander, there are enough books to have 7 or 8 seasons.

15. Saddest TV moment.

Sam dying in SPN 2x21 All Hell Breaks Loose. Dean holding his brother's limp body in his arms, telling him it's going to be okay, that Dean will fix him, then Dean screaming Sam's name as the screen fades to black.

Dr Who. Ten's final words before he regenerates. "I don't want to go." I had been sobbing through out the whole episode but those 5 words had me bawling like a baby for ages afterwards. It was as if it was also David Tennant saying that he didn't want to leave the show and I didn't want him to leave so I was a complete mess.

Farscape. Talyn!John dying. I knew as soon as they introduced the 2nd Crichton, that 1 of them would die, but it hurt so much seeing it happen, esp as it was the John who finally got together with Aeryn. So I was sad for her as well.

16. Most satisfying TV moment.
Anytime I sit down to watch the Supernatural pilot, knowing of the amazing and awesome journey I've got to look forward to with my all-time favourite characters. And knowing that there is still more brand new SPN to come.

17. A character you identify with.

Sam Winchester. Always trying to do the best but making some really crappy decisions along the way. Feeling like I'll never be quite good enough to please my family no matter how hard I try.

18. A character that reminds you of your friend.

Zahn from Farscape. Like her my friend is always there when I need to talk or cry or bitch or celebrate. She always seems to know exactly what to say or do to make me feel better.

19. Favorite talk show.

Don't watch them much but if I had to choose, then Jerry Springer. That show was soooooooooo bad it was good!!!!

20. Sports or nah.

Sports definitely!!! Love my cricket in the summer and Aussie Rules football in the winter. The Olympics every 4 years (both summer and winter) are my dreams of sporting heaven. 2 whole weeks of 24 hours sports coverage.

21. A TV world you'd like to live in.

Supernatural. Simply because it has Sam Winchester in it!!!!

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte at #AlwaysKeepFighting Love Meme
Hey, guys. As you by now surely know, it's been a really emotional weekend for the Supernatural fandom. One of our boys is hurting, and all of us have been pulling together, sending him our love and wishing him the best.

While my heart is broken for Jared right now, the thing that has struck me most over the last 24 hours has been the outpouring of love and support that I've seen circulating. It's been really beautiful and inspiring.

Today on Twitter, [livejournal.com profile] yohkobennington started to leave random love for her friends, and that made me think: when is a better time to take stock and remind ourselves how much we all mean to each other in fandom than now? Jared's not the only one going through a hard time, and I think we could all use some cheering up.

So, without further ado, I've decided to create the #AlwaysKeepFighting Love Meme so we can spread love to each other.

Dropping by to say that I will be answering the comments I've gotten for the character meme. Thanks to those who have already given me some very interesting characters to think about and if anyone wants to add to the list, feel free.

I've just started back at work after 5 weeks off (annual leave) and I was pretty exhausted, so did nothing much but sleep and watch SPN today. But I will get on to them tomorrow.

Speaking of show: I was incredibly bored with it on first viewing but that may have been because of how tired I was, could barely keep my eyes open. Have re-watched it after a very refreshing 10 hours sleep, and while it won't ever be a favourite, it wasn't nearly as bad as I first thought. There are still things that annoyed me (Rowena) but there are also bits that I really liked (pretty much all Sam-related). Planning to do a more detailed reaction post tomorrow but it's off to work I must go now.

For [livejournal.com profile] alethiometry :

Share your favorite holiday recipe!

As I mentioned in an earlier post for this meme, my favourite holiday deserts are Christmas pudding and brandy custard. Whilst I don't have the exact recipes my nana used, these are pretty close, including wrapping the pudding in calico, hiding silver threepenses and sixpenses (pre-decimal coins) in the pudding mixture to be found and making it weeks before Xmas to really develop the tastes and flavours, especially of the alcohol.
